What is Matsuri?

 
Maneki Neko

Matsuri is UW Japanese Student Association’s most popular annual event, and the largest celebration of Japanese culture on campus. Unlike our other (fantastic) events throughout the year, Matsuri’s appeal extends beyond the UW community, inviting everyone of any age to come together and enjoy the festivities throughout the day.

The theme for Matsuri 2019 is “Lost in Tokyo”, which transforms the HUB ballroom to streets similar like izakaya alleys. Different from Tokyo’s famous neon-lit skyscrapers scenery, you will be able to experience a cultural side of Tokyo at night at Matsuri this year!

Main Performer

Our main performer this year is Japanese comedian and ventriloquist Showko Showfukutei. Showko has appeared on a Japanese TV show “Gooto Chikyu bin" documenting her life and career, TV Tokyo “Sekai Naze Sokoninihonjin” , NHK “Tsurube no Kazokini Kampai” , Singapore and Australia on Australia's Got Talent 2016 as a finalist, ABC TV for the "International Women's Day Debate" as well as being interviewed on ABC National Radio with John Faine.

Check out her amazing performance here!
